Award List:

SBIR Phase I: A Novel Bulk Acoustic Wave Oil Quality Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Lester French, PI
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a novel acoustic wave sensor for use as an oil quality monitor for motor vehicles and industrial machinery. Normally oil quality is not monitored in situ. The most common method of ensuring oil… More

SBIR Phase I: A Lateral Field Excited Immunosensor for Pathogenic Bacteria in Drinking Water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Lester A. French, Mr
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a lateral field excited (LFE) acoustic wave immunosensor for the detection of the pathogenic bacteria, E. coli, in drinking water. Current methods of testing drinking water for E. coli have several major… More

STTR Phase I: A Monolithic Spiral Coil Acoustic Transduction Immunosensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Univ of ME
Principal Investigator: Donald F. McCann, Mr
Award Amount: $149,906.00
RI Contact: Dean J. Smith
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I research project aims to develop a monolithic spiral coil acoustic transduction (MSCAT) immunosensor for the detection of E. coli, in drinking water. The MSCAT sensor is more sensitive than standard ones because it can detect both electrical… More

A Lateral Field Excited Sensor Element for Saxitoxin in a Marine Environment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Donald McCann, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I grant will demonstrate the feasibility of using a Lateral Field Excited (LFE) acoustic wave sensor platform coated with a selective chemical film for the rapid in situ detection of saxitoxin (STX). Shellfish containing STX, a product of a Harmful Algal… More
